Jeanne Beijerman-Walraven (14 June 1878 – 20 September 1969) was a Dutch composer. She was born in Semarang, Indonesia, and studied privately with Frits Koeberg in The Hague.[1][2]

Beijerman-Walraven's early compositions were late Romantic in style, but she adopted contemporary techniques and later works became more Expressionist. Although she received recognition early in her career, her work was seldom played after the 1920s. She died in Arnhem.[3]
